Have AFCB got another free kick specialist?

In recent seasons we have seen some fabulous free kicks scored by Simon Francis, Brett Pitman, Harry Arter and Matt Ritchie in particular. Yet is seems that there is a new kid on the block or rather a bit of French flare that has been added to the mix. Yann Kermorgant is some technician and if you thought Steven Gerrard can hit a mean free kick, it make come as a bit of a surprise to Liverpool fans to know that AFCB has a player that can hit top corners from dead balls just as accurately. 

See all the goals including Yann Kermorgant's free kick on the highlights video.
Yann Kermorgant admittedly did not face his free kick under nearly the same pressure that Steven Gerrard was facing in the last 10 minutes of their match against FC Basel, but don't blink or you'll find that Kermorgant will have bedazzled you with a free kick that is equally top draw with anything your stars in the Premier League can do. Following Yann's spectacular scissor kick against Ipswich Town in November, there is mention that Yann could well dominate this season's goal of the season choices if he keeps up his sequence of outstanding finishes.
Pick your spot Yann, top left?
The beauty of Kermorgant is that he appears to play even better when his starting place has come under threat. each of the Bournemouth players are pushing one another along to play even better. As long as Yann is brave enough to keep stepping up for penalties as well, he should reach double figures this season.
